She's the third of nine children born and raised in Salt Lake City Utah. She met her husband in high-school--and we married in 1993. She wrote her first book while on bed rest with her third child and have gone on to publish 6 other novels in the LDS market. She's fascinated by the Mormon experience and her books are all focused around modern issues as experienced by someone of the same faith. She try hard to keep from preaching, rather she'd like to show the contrast of choices and influences--temporal and spiritual.
She currently lives in Willard, Utah with her husband, four children, nine chickens, and two dogs--a 3 year old Blue Healer and a Golden Retriever puppy.
